On January 1st 2011, they performed at the 2 Kolegas. According to Beijing Daze: I’ve given them a hard time recently because they kept playing the same songs over and over! I take it all back… the previous shows at 2 Kolegas were just a way to keep the band in shape while waiting for original bassist, Li Na, to return and record the new album. I’ve seen them a good 20+ times by now and it was the first time with Li Na… and it freaking kicked ass!!! Zhen Kai did an admirable job filling in while she was on maternity leave but it doesn’t compare to the real thing! She brought a new energy to the band! They played a lot of songs of their new record, Autumn, including the song “buyi” which is one of my favorites. Heck, the album itself is pretty solid and will be reviewed shortly. A testament to the audience being freaking amazing that night is that Buyi was called back for two encores.. and guess what, both encores consisted of variations of “la la la la la” that the crowd ate up. I can’t recall seeing that much energy at 2 Kolegas in a long time, or ever…
